I feel at the time, the Christian church was dictating much of the theme of the art that was being produced. I think of this time as more of the “Dark Ages” when it comes to artists being able to express their own style and not was being dictated to them by the church. With this being said, there are many great examples of art that shows innovation. The artistry on the Lindesfarne Gospel and the Book of Kells is exquisite. It reminds me of the more modern trend of zentangles.
